Sha-bang!! Killer old Merlot from Coombsville before anyone thought of growing much there. Sweet cherry and berry and cedar with a minty note.

Med garnet smells of cedar black olives sandalwood graphite. In the mouth flavors of cherry cedar leather and dried herbs are gorgeously silky long and well balanced. 9.5

Recommended by the sommelier at Riverpark. Cedar, tobacco, herbs. Shows age with weight and great texture, but still retains freshness and vibrancy. A rare find.

Baked cherries, fruit still ripe. Savory. Showed its age in weight and texture on the palate but very lively.
